3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They make sure to explain to us just what to do in case of campus crime, and there's a security alert you can get when something happens

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's really a hit and miss with professors. Some are great, and others aren't really great at teaching.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is safe, with several emergency phones across campus if needed.

Overall Experience: It's a hit and miss with professors. Some are good and others aren't.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like if you graduate with a bachelor's from CSUS, you might have a hard time finding a job. It depends on the major.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For impacted majors like bio or chem it's impossible to get into classes. Sac State obviously wasn't my first college choice but it's close to home so it's convenient. The biggest problems at this school are parking and trying to get into the classes you need.

Drug Safety: I feel like as adults this is all a given, I've met so many people that go to parties and don't drink or smoke and have a great time and nobody judges them. There's no need to try and be strict about this since usually I don't see much things go wrong at all.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have only heard about these things a couple times throughout the year, but I can tell they try their best to spread the message and awareness.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'd say this school has a lot of potential to grow in many ways, they simply need more funding for campus housing and much more money for clubs and organizations and things for events for social. As for education I feel like we have almost about everything we need, except for the fact that classes get taken up quickly which leaves freshmen struggling. However, I do like this school and find it worth moving to Sacramento to come to school. I am proud to come here, I simply hope it can grow in all areas.

Greek Life: I find greek life to be somewhat irrelevant to people because we're not allowed to have official houses in Sacramento, however there is a greek life. It's just hidden in a way, due to the school not letting them build houses which would bring a bigger view of the greek life and more established chapters we are just forced to be secluded to the rest of the campus community. It builds a barrier from the campus community to the greek community.

Athletics: In my opinion, the overall school spirit in the school isn't as good as I wish it would be. It kind of reminds me of a high school football team due to the size of the field and amount of people who attend. I wish the spirit would be much better, maybe it's time Sac State changes logos or makes advertising a little more flamboyant. But I do notice that people do attend and there are trucks for food at the games which I appreciate to the fullest, the spirit is just not to the best I wish it would be.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This campus is huge, I find that there are a lot of people on this campus from all over North California it's not a huge commuter school as people make it seem I've met so many people who actually had to leave home to live close to school. However, the lack of school spirit, clubs, events, and overall unity in the campus population is what makes this school seem very dull to many people. I find that this school is very diverse and the students have so many good/fun qualities in them because I've met so many of them. But the school doesn't really provide us with many fun activities to do, other than the ordinary Dj outside with the rare times they actually have very small events. However, nothing to really impact the school.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: You still can go to school to get more degree or higher than degree.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I experience that my school is pretty good because the most of my teacher help me when I don't understand some assignment. Also when it time to fill out for college and FASFA they tell us how to apply. we keep our school clean and our school win for competition from other place. No, I would not choose my school again if I have the chance to choose again because to experience other high school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I only visited a couple of times and the carpets were gross.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We pay tuition for a gym to be used for only the football team and I find that stupid. I am not into sports so I do not attend any events.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
